Neighbor Naughtiness

Thanks to the heirloom seeds that were planted in the fall, the sink harvest was good this year.

Hobbit Friday

This entry comes courtesy of Pokey.  Pokey commutes to work, and some of the hobbits he comes in contact with…  makes me REALLY wish I could take the bus to work.

Hobbit Friday

A day late…  but, since I just got tickets for their November 5th show here in Columbus, I bring you Muse!


Great music and Hobbit Yumminess!  Two great tastes that taste great together!

A New Feature

I’ve been inspired to write again.  By checking out my environment, I’ve decided to add a new feature to the ranks of Haiku Tuesday and Hobbit Friday.


This one is called - “Neighbor Naughtiness”


My next door neighbor is a hoarder.  So, to kick off the new feature, I bring you “Hoarding for the Cure”


I THINK that is small unusable pieces of pink foam insulation.  But you just don’t know with her.  And I’m sure I’ll be able to take another photo of that same bucket with those same contents near the same spot 9 months from now when it’s covered with snow.

Checking In

Hey all.  Not sure if anyone ever reads this anymore.  I know it has been forever since I posted anything.

This post is coming from Windows Live Writer on my laptop.  Just set it up, so this is kind of a test post.  Maybe if I have this at my fingertips, so to speak, on my laptop, I’ll start doing this again.

I know there has been PLENTY to blog about recently, what with the Supremely Stupid Court deciding that corporations have more human rights than humans, and with the congressional dems proving once and for all that they neither have spines or cojones.  So maybe I’ll be back on here again.

Stop The Insanity

One of my biggest pet peeves is the use of the word "literally". I work with someone who uses it, incorrectly, very frequently. Why do people insist on using "literally", when they really mean "really" or "very" or even "really very"?

And now Meg Stapleton, the spokesperson for that brilliant user of the English language Sarah Palin, made this statement:

"The world is literally her oyster."

Really??? The world is now an oyster? A shelled creature filled with delectable meat and occasionally a valuable pearl? Really?

Stupid is as stupid does.

Is Palin Paling?

Sarah Palin announced today that not only will she NOT be running for reelection as High Priestess governor of Alaska in 2010, but she will be stepping down from the office by the end of this month.

So now I'm wondering, Why? My first thought was so she could spend all of her time criticizing President Obama and set herself up for a run for Prez herself in 2012. But is showing you can't follow through on a commitment you made to the people of Alaska 3 years ago the way to convince people you're up for the top job in the country? Or maybe she's gittin while the gittins good, knowing that when she does complete her first term, Alaska will be far worse off than when she took office.

Or, maybe, just maybe, there's something else brewing, ala Mark Sanford, John Ensign, or any of the other Family Values Republicans, and she thinks if she's gone it'll blow over before it makes national news.

Or maybe, as I suspect, she's just an out and out certifiable nutjob.

Biggest Failed Advertising Taglines

"Now with 25% less Bio-Waste!"

Alfred Hitchcock May Have Been on to Something

This drama is unfolding on my street, just 4 or 5 houses down.

Farewell, Bea

You brought so much laughter to my life. Now your death has brought much sadness.

May you rest in peace.

Add Georgia

They really need to just get over it.


Go ahead Texas - PLEASE do it.

And take Alabama and Mississippi with you. It'll lower my federal tax bill not having to carry your sorry asses anymore.

Hobbit Friday

Yes, it's been a lonnnnnnggggggg time since I posted ANYTHING. And what better way to get back in the saddle than a Hobbit!

This is Dave Gipson, lead singer of a band here in good ole Cowtown, named "Home Again".

And according to Pokey, "height = short".

He can come home again here anytime.

Say it with me...

Former President George W. Bush.

Oh, doesn't it feel good to say that?

Pokey and I took a bottle of prosecco to our neighbors tonight so we could all toast the end of our national nightmare, and to our new President.

Oh.... how happy my heart is today...
